We've talked about a recent and controversial message in support of an EPIC Kansas City airport money grab and now the talk of political consequences is growing even more extreme.
To wit . . .
THE SHADY COCKPIT MESSAGE IN SUPPORT OF BURNS & MAC BUILDING A NEW KANSAS CITY SINGLE-TERMINAL CORPORATE AIRPORT FAILS TO OFFER MUCH OF ANY TRANSPARENCY!!!
Some of the best and brightest local denizens believed the advert was noteworthy for the brazen "assumed close" and the hard sell approach . . .
Take a listen for those who don't remember . . .
And now . . .
HERE'S A KICK-ASS CAMPAIGN FACT CHECK REGARDING THE COCKPIT ADVERT TOUTING A NEW CORPORATE AIRPORT WITHOUT OFFERING ANY IDENTIFYING INFO!!!
Here's the word:
"Those current (and horrid) radio ads lack any sort of sponsorship identification and as such (might) violate federal regulations. Stations running them may be subject to impressive fines."

Talk about crash and burn . . .
And once again it seems like the "smartest guys in the room" have managed to stall another campaign endeavor as new airport talk fails to convince anybody who isn't on the payroll despite a great deal of high flying promises.
